“Great weekend even in the rain!!! Great Place/people!!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

This place is great. Very nice campground. Owners and employees are awesome. We stayed last weekend 10/11/13. We arrived on Friday afternoon in the pouring rain. Check in was a breeze and we were advised that some of the campground has lots of water. So we checked out our campsite and decided that it wasn't going to work for our family and pets. So we went to the front office ready to leave and eat the deposit knowing it was our choice and we were ok with that. We went to the front office and were, unbeknowst to us at that time, greeted by the owner. He was great, showed us another area that we could move to that was more dry and a great location as well. I can not explain or emphasize enough how wonderful, friendly and helpful the staff and owners were through of the rain and mess. Finally on Saturday it dried up and we had a wonderful day ahead of us. The campground had plenty of activities for the kids and everyone. Parade, trick or treating, haunted house, music and lots of fun for everyone. The staff were wonderful to be sure while the kids were trick or treating that traffic was held to a very minimum. Again, I can't not express our gratitude and thankfulness to everyone for all the hospitality during our stay. We will definitely be back again and with many of our camping friends too. The employees/ manager at Oak Creek Campground in Narvon, PA could learn a lot from this place!!!! Thank you everyone at Mountain Creek Campground.

Beautiful campground with something for everyone!

Just a few reasons why we love Mountain Creek--
Beautiful views, trails, creek, weekly themes for the kids--(Pirates weekend was a blast!), movie night for the kids every Friday, hay rides, mini golf, live bands, DJ at the pool.
Kids can float down the creek with their tubes or catch minnows while Mom and Dad sit in the creek with their chairs and relax or read a book.
Great sites, clean bath houses, and wonderful people! Everyone is warm and friendly. The new owners are doing a fantastic job.

Bathrooms are very poorly maintained and falling apart. Your lucky to have toilet paper when you use there bathrooms. You need to take your own. Forget playing mini golf because its not maintained and the greens were all torn up. The mini golf also had bee nests which we found out after my son got stung and they did nothing. My boy was using the rest room and the lady staff member went in without knocking. Isn't that some sort of child felony. They lied to us and were very mean and nasty. The staff were very rude. I would not suggest going to this camp site.

We had our first camping trip of the season at Mountain Creek on an extended Father's Day weekend. Although it was very busy, the bathrooms were always clean - a must for me. When campers checked out, a staff member came to the site to clean out the fire pit and pick up any unburned wood and/or trash. Most of the sites are quite roomy for a private campground except for those around Pavilion 2. Stay clear of these if you don't like to be crowded in.

The staff (many young people) was friendly and helpful. They gave us early check in and check out without charge - very appreciated. The site charges were quite reasonable to begin with.

One suggestion I have is to mark the site boundaries with more than just arrows on the hookup box which indicate where you should plug in, not actually where your site is. According to those arrows, our site, 131,would have had a huge tree right in the middle. There should have been something indicating that the site was actually between the two large trees. We noticed walking around, that none of the sites had clearly marked boundaries. If a greedy person set up on a next door site and spread their stuff out before you get there, it would leave you with a smaller space. Believe me, there are people like that.

Overall, it is a great campground, and we will definitely return again. Hopefully, we will get a creek-side site. Reserve early to get one of those. They are the most desirable. The creek is lovely.

If you are looking for a nice clean campground this is the place. Bathrooms and showers are clean and the staff works hard at keeping them that way. They have a nice virety of sites and some that are right along the creek. On the weekends the have plenty to do for kids and folks of all ages. Pool is clean. There is also a lot of stuff near by like hiking Pole Steeple.

My husband and I camped during one of our first outings with a new RV. We found the campgrounds to be clean and well maintained, even in pre-season. The staff was very accomadating and helpful. As new campers, we experienced a couple of glitches with our new trailer and two different staff members went out of their way to help and offer advice. The sites on the creek were great, and very large. Plan to visit again.

It was a clean campground with a nice stream to play in since the pool was closed because the power was out (July 2012)
We did not find the owners friendly - as a matter of fact their children which help run the place were rude. These people were most accomadating to their permies (regulars) however they were only interested in $ when it came to out of towners. No Recommended
